About Us

FOCAS Ministries has almost a 30 year record of proven success with more than 20 years in Cincinnati’s community of Over the Rhine. Lives have been transformed! Our program works on a very Spartan budget, limited processes, a no-frills environment, and high financial accountability standards. We have been a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability since 2002.
